Weekend baking – coffee walnut whips

Simple to make and tasty. Kind of like making truffles; coat the moulds, make the filling (in this case, coffee mixed with sugar and heated, then poured over chopped choc and mixed till smooth) then pour into the set cases. When the filling is set and the top coat put on, smoosh a walnut half […]

Weekend Baking- “Florentines”

A hot, sticky September afternoon is perhaps not the best time to try making these, but I’d got it into my head that I wanted to try. So I did. I know these aren’t proper Florentines, but I couldn’t think what else to call them! I started by tracing some circles on a sheet of […]

Weekend baking- Oreo Wonderfuls

Weekly Inspiration- Wilton ideas page

After the success of my peanut butter cups, I wanted to try more filled candy delights. As I’d used Wilton Candy Melts for the peanut butter filling, I thought the Wilton website would be a sensible place to start. I was right.

Weekend baking- peanut butter cups

While we were in Florida, I picked up a whole new load of candy making stuff- mostly Wilton. Actually, I thinkĀ all of it was Wilton! I got peanut butter flavour and dark chocolate candy melts, a new candy mould, some squeezy bottle things, and some decorating brushes. Making peanut butter cups meant I got to […]
